Marking moderation and External Examiner Reports

University of Northampton franchised degrees [MBA]

LSBM follows the protocols adopted by the University of Northampton which are outlined in their rules, regulations and procedures.  Specifically, assessments are initially marked by LSBM tutors and then moderated by tutors at the University of Northampton (internal moderation).  A sample of scripts are then externally moderated by External Examiners through the University system.

Feedback from the external examiners, is forwarded to us by the University and appropriate local action taken as part of our own quality assurance and enhancement procedures.

University of Northampton validated degrees [Business Management, Accounting and Financial Management, and LLB]

We follow our own internal protocols which are outlined in our rules, regulations and procedures; these protocols are approved and supported by the University of Northampton.  Specifically, a sample of assessments are initially standardised and then all assessments are marked and moderated by LSBM tutors.  A sample is then sent to our External Examiners who are appointed by the University of Northampton.

All External Examiner reports and our responses to those reports are then made available and any follow-up action to be taken as part of our quality assurance and enhancement procedures follows. These can both be seen below:
